Charlotte, N.C. – (Saturday, October 16, 2021) – Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department's Armed Robbery Unit have charged Kendell Alexander, DOB: 06/12/1964, Steven McCory, DOB: 02/28/195 and Derrius Fleming, DOB: 12/09/1990 for an armed robbery.
On October 15, 2021, shortly before 10:00 a.m., officers with the Central Division responded to the Bank of America located at 212 Iverson Way in reference to an armed robbery from a business call for service. Upon arrival, officers spoke with the victim, who advised that two subjects brandished firearms and took property from the business.
A short time later, a Central Division officer spotted the suspect vehicle turning into a nearby neighborhood and observed the suspects attempting to switch vehicles. The responding officers attempted to initiate a traffic stop on this new vehicle, but the driver refused to stop, and a pursuit ensued. The brief pursuit ended as the vehicle crashed at the dead-end of Spruce Street and the suspects then fled on foot, attempting to cross I77. The CMPD Aviation Unit, K-9 Unit, and Metro Division Officers assisted with the search of the suspects.
Alexander, McCoy and Fleming were detained without further incident. They were transported to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Law Enforcement Center to be interviewed by Armed Robbery Detectives and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Violent Crime Task Force. At the conclusion of the interview, he was transferred to the custody of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office and charged with Armed Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon.
